Angel MedFlight honored with award from BCEN

Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN) has selected Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance as the winner of the 2016 BCEN Honorary Certification Recognition Award — small health care facility, the company said.

All of Angel MedFlight´s nurses have earned their certified flight registered nurse (CFRN) credential, joining air medical transport clinicians who hold the designation. Worldwide less than 3,400 nurses have earned the certification.

Administered by the BCEN, the CFRN is a specialty care certification that verifies medical expertise specific to flight nursing. Nationally, only 59 percent of nurses who take the test earn their CFRN credential. Few fixed-wing air ambulance medical teams achieve 100 percent certification.

Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance provides domestic and international air medical transportation services on a fleet of medically-configured Learjet aircraft.
